First Weekly Game..

Excellent night with the fans. It started out slow and stayed that way. We only had a couple of people playing. I really do not like short games, but at least it was with fun people. The hand of the night:

aewsome hand to go out on dude!

“The Hammer” let him down but he almost had me. I really was reading people well at the table for some reason. I almost always caught DoubleAs bluffing. As I joked with him “Maybe it is because you bluff all the time” .. you No Limit guys! It is hard to scare someone off a pot for a buck!

The final tally.. Squator, DoubleAs, Todd Commish, Chris Halverson poked his head in to say “Hi”. Iggy made an appearance. I do not know what it is about Iggy but something about his play immediately puts me on Tilt. I cannot imaging how bad it would be in a casino face to face. Perhaps this is his main Poker skill. I do not know. All kidding aside he comes to the table and really played well. He bluffed a lot I believe, but mostly with good cards. His bluffing skills are really good. He never hesitates and makes you believe he has it, and if you do not believe him, he makes you pay next time when he has it.

Congrats to DoubleA for winning a place in the TEC. I forget what he gets to play for, but it sounded really good.. I am sure he will write it up.

I ended up almost doubled up which was nice. Cards were really good to me at the begging, as well as DoubleA, so I ended up doing nicely. I played really loose because the game was short. I am not sure exactly how to adjust my game for four players, but I know playing only premium hands is a good way to get blinded out. So I decided to take my winnings and hit the 20/2 limit tourney. If I lose then I am up 38 bucks for the night (including some ½ I played earlier). If I win then who knows. I might even crack the elusive 1K ceiling I seem to find myself in. Here is to some good cards! Out in 10th place. QQ lost to 89 when it made a straight, and the same guy with K10 when I raised pre-flop and was betting and raising my QQ’s to the river. What a moron. Except I lost. Lol.

Sorry I couldn't stay longer, but I was having serious trouble double-tabling with your game and an O8 SnG. I dropped $15 in your room, decided to focus on the SnG, and went from last to first and won the SnG for a +$25 night. Sheesh, I don't know how you guys play lots of tables at once.

Oh, and you left off my HAMMER victory when A72 flopped. Of course, I lost all of those winnings back, but it was a good time. I just gotta learn how to multitask better.

I had a blast even though you did own me last night. I did make a profit at LIMIT, so the fun got rewarded as well. You should set more of these up and keep inviting me. It'll help your bottom line over the long run.

I am going to try and do one every week. I will post it up and then make sure I get like 10 definates. If 10 people are not going to show up then I will cancel it. I think I will keep it at .50/1. It makes it fun without much to lose.

Todd -- Keep practicing the two tabling. It took me a long time to get used to it. I started 3 tabling, but I think it distracts your attention a little too much. I was doing 1 table most of the night at our game and thus I could focus on stuff like who is bluffing, and when to call people down.

Maybe that is what went wrong. I was 4 tabling. 2 NL ring games and a tournament. When in doubt, raise.
